Formlabs improves production throughput by creating a multiprinter facility via Form Cell

February 13, 2020 | Case Study

3D printing has many advantages over traditional manufacturing, such as product customization and part consolidation. However, the devil is always at its throughput: Many applications require costly (sometimes over $1 million) printers, and many printing technologies have long post-processing time. With these factors along with the cost of raw materials, design, and labor, 3D printing often struggles to compete with traditional manufacturing in terms of throughput per dollar value.*
